Suntech to Launch BIPV Products for the European Market at Intersolar 2008

SAN FRANCISCO and MUNICH, Germany, June 10 /Xinhua-PRNewswire/ -- Suntech Power Holdings Co., Ltd. (NYSE: STP), one of the world's leading manufacturers of photovoltaic (PV) cells and modules, today announced it will introduce its Just Roof(TM), Light Thru(TM) and QuikSnap building integrated PV (BIPV) products from Suntech's MSK Solar Design Line(TM) to the European market at the upcoming Intersolar Technology Trade Fair 2008. Intersolar will be held from June 12-14, 2008 at The New Trade Fair Centre in Munich, Germany.

With more than 4,000 installations worldwide, Suntech's Just Roof(TM) is a roof integrated PV system designed to form a complete roof, replacing tiles or other roof coverings. The system, which was initially released in 1994, features interlocking panels mounted on specially designed rails to give a highly aesthetic, weatherproof building skin that can be installed quickly and easily.

Suntech's Light Thru(TM) BIPV glazing encapsulates cells between two sheets of glass with enough spacing to allow light to pass through. Light Thru(TM) is made to order, allowing designers flexibility in specifying the desired size, cell type, and cell spacing.

Suntech's QuikSnap panels provide a new approach to roof-mounted solar systems. By integrating the mounting fixtures into the module and making cable connection automatic, QuikSnap offers sleek and stylish aesthetics and unparalleled reliability in addition to reduced installation cost.

''Suntech's MSK Solar Design Line(TM) incorporates a range of building integrated and semi-integrated products that give installers and end-users a much greater variety of solar applications and designs to choose from,'' said Dr. Zhengrong Shi, Suntech's Chairman and CEO. ''These products are designed to make solar systems attractive and easy to integrate into existing and new building structures at the same time as providing an alternate source of clean and renewable energy.''

Dr. Shi continued, ''The MSK Solar Design Line(TM) has received a strong customer response in other regions and we are pleased to officially launch the Just Roof(TM), Light Thru(TM) and QuikSnap products to the European market. We will continue to devote resources to developing a diverse portfolio of solar products that combine high quality, affordability, and high power output to meet the rapidly evolving needs of solar users.''
